Cape Town – Russian state-owned nuclear company Rosatom acknowledged Eskom’s decision to terminate its request for information (RFI) and said the court ruling last week had no direct relation to it.

“Although we still believe that the recent RFI was only intended for information gathering and to further enable transparency in the procurement procedure, and was therefore a timely and necessary step, Rosatom acknowledges its termination as announced by Eskom,” a Rosatom official told Fin24 on Wednesday.

“Rosatom confirms its willingness to participate in any further procedures that may be brought forward by the relevant authorities of the Republic of South Africa and remains committed to participating in a transparent and competitive procurement procedure should and when it arises.”
